First Question: Can't seem to figure out why everytime I unplug my external drive and plug it back I have the external drive on root access only? Means I can access but i can't seem to put anything inside that drive. Can somebody help me on that?

Second Question: I have this wireless keyboard and mouse from Microsoft. While using it, things seem to be ok until like a few hrs later or if I am running a few programs, my keyboard would lag, I mean lag so bad that I am typing like I am hitting one key at a time. It's very annoying when typing, I don't even see my keys at all when I type. so to be able to see my letters, I have to type really slow. How can I fix this problem? I've tried to configure it in VASMCC and from settings on keyboard, and nothing seem to work. HEEEEEELP.

Thx in advance.

I'm not sure why the permissions are being reset to root but if you open a root filemanager you should be able to fix the permissions back. You could also move files around like that.

Thanks for reply, actually that's what I thought to when you get into root, but still no permission to move files inside that drive, that only happens after I unplug the external drive then plug it back in, then the permission changed. I really don't get it, there must be a settings that needs to be edit or add to the list somewhere, but I just don't know where.

Yeah, I had a problem kinda like this a while back where I couldn't move, add, or delete anything on my usb stick even as root. I let the stick go through a reboot and unplug/plug-in and it was fine.  Huh Smiley
